In brief: If problem is parent
Family therapy is usually a good foundaton in issues involving couples and groups.
The focus is that the problem is not exclusively with an individual person, rather between persons (interactions between family members). Therapists observes what happens between persons in how they communicate and express their feelings. Problems are assumed circular-created by series of cause and effect.
